Donald can’t handle reality | Tom Camfield

Posted

“LOCK HER UP!” the partisan crowd chanted Wednesday night — during a typical mask-free Donald Trump rally in Minnesota. By mid-day Friday he was confined to Walter Reed medical center being treated for coronavirus.

In Minnesota (10 electoral votes), Trump said the state (which has a large Somalian population) would be turned into a “refugee camp” by his presidential opponent Joe Biden. “It is Joe Biden’s plan to inundate your state with a historic flood of refugees.” he bellowed with his usual inanity.

Turning (again) to the subject of Omar, who represents Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, Trump asked, “What is going on with Omar? I’ve been reading these reports for two years about how corrupt and crooked she is. Let’s get with it! “ (What reports?) He suggested she wasn’t a true citizen because of her roots. He also has repeated false claims that she has been active in a ballot-harvesting scheme.

As more than 210,000 Americans have died on behalf of unsuccessful economic recovery, with more to follow, I won’t be writing anything sympathetic about Donald Trump. He pretty much summed up his mask-less self-absorbed attitude early in August (coronavirus deaths then “only” about 150,000) with the dismissal: “It is what it is.” And with the Washington Post having logged some 20,000 or 25,000 lies by Donald over the past four years, let’s give his conveniently-timed personal battle with coronavirus another couple of weeks before we apply it to the upcoming election.

Opinion columnist Maureen Dowd in the New York Times observed Saturday “. . . As president, he has created a bubble within his bubble, keeping out science and anything that made him look bad. He has played a dangerous game of alchemizing wishes to facts, pretending that he was a strong leader, pretending that the virus will magically disappear and that it ‘affects virtually nobody,’ pretending that we don’t have to wear masks, pretending that dicey remedies could work, pretending that the vaccine is right around the corner. Now, in a moment that feels biblical, the implacable virus has come to his door . . .”

Racism also seems to have been on the rise in recent years. White supremacy. We can keep Donald in the major-headline news politically by calling attention to a New York Times story, also Oct. 2 , around the time his virus infection was making its presence known. “The Trump administration said it would cut its already rock-bottom refugee admittances deep into record territory for the upcoming year as President Donald Trump returned to his anti-immigrant themes in the closing month of his reelection campaign . . .” from the 110,000 slots that President Barack Obama approved in 2016 to Trump’s 18,000 for last year, to just 15,000 for the fiscal year which began last Thursday.

“The president and his political advisers . . . believe that the largely successful effort to seal off the country from asylum-seekers and refugees fleeing persecution, war and violence is a winning campaign issue . . . “

They seem to be wrong.

Meanwhile, closing the borders, building walls, etc. tie in nicely with the white supremacy Donald mistakenly assumes to be an American majority. Give him a black office-holder who who strongly disagrees with his egocentric view of our society and you have someone such as Ilhan Omar. No matter that she fled violence in Somalia at age 8, has been a legal citizen for 20 years, etc. No natter that Donald’s third wife, Melania Knavs, was born in 1970 in Slovenia (Yugoslavia) and became a U.S. citizens just 14 years ago. On Aug. 9, 2018, Melania’s parents became U.S. citizens.

OTHER ODDS & ENDS — Sept 11: A reporter for The New York Times was kicked out of a rally for Donald Trump in Michigan, after noting on social media that many of the president’s supporters were not wearing masks or keeping their distance despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kentucky’s Senator Mitch McConnell accused his opponent Amy McGrath (press release) of potentially backing out of an October debate. But according to his opponent, the real issue is the incumbent senator’s refusal to participate in an event with a female moderator. So partially in support of a truthful press, I sent along a financial dog to take part in the fight that is Amy McGrath’s campaign. McConnell’s release stated “Sen. Mitch McConnell has not participated in a debate in Kentucky where the candidates took questions from a female moderator in nearly 25 years, and he continues to resist allowing women to host debates."

If you give free health care to illegals, and $1,200 per person and up to $6,000 per household of illegals under the HEROES Act, and abolish the agency that is tasked with enforcing our immigration laws what the hell do you think will be the outcome? A green light for more illegals, Duh. I guess in Tom's world anyone who believes in controlling our borders and enforcing our immigration policies must be a "racist" or a "white supremacist".

Give it up

Just in hale, please volunteer to help your buddy Trump" build that wall" if you think it is so important. Why is it only big man Trump has solutions. Why do we have Congress? an immigration department. Trump is a racist. When you approve of white nationalists attacking people because they are black, you are a racist, when you say it's o.k. to grab a woman's (won't say it) your a misogynist. Worst of all he is the worst president we have ever had.

Your big white hope is full of crap, get over it. Or maybe you should go give him a big fat kiss to thank him for all the spreading he is doing. Whoever writes this for you should just give it up. No one believes your bull.

Dexamethasone, a steroid that Trump has been receiving as part of his treatment for COVID-19, is known to have powerful psychological and emotional effects, including feelings of euphoria and omnipotence, but also anxiety and depression. That’s new?

Donald has been all over the governor of Michigan—and now we hear of a well-organized plot that included her kidnapping.

U.S. coronavirus deaths as of this morning (Thursday): 211,801. Confirmed new cases today 302,707.

Trump and Attorney General William Barr have promoted a false narrative that voter fraud is rampant, potentially undermining Americans’ faith in the election.

In a prolonged interview on Fox News, Trump criticized AG William Barr for not arresting enough Democrats and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for not finding Hillary Clinton’s emails from her tenure as secretary of state, which the president believes are somewhere inside the State Department.

Senate: Drop everything else and concentrate on the hurried appointment of a new Supreme Court justice—in case Donald can make use of her.

Etc. and so it goes. Just a part of the “old news” by the time for a new blog a week from now.

"Donald has been all over the governor of Michigan—and now we hear of a well-organized plot that included her kidnapping. "...... so will this be your new dump on Trump story?

"Trump and Attorney General William Barr have promoted a false narrative that voter fraud is rampant, potentially undermining Americans’ faith in the election."..... You still beating that horse Tom? In another post I proved that voter fraud is a reality, but here you go again promoting a fiction.

Say What?

Just in hale proved that voter fraud is real. His ego as as enormous as Trump. Don't listen to this guy, he is just like Pence. Sycophants all (even the fly could seemed to be wondering how the guy could like, without moving his lips.), Logic doesn't work on these guys. but Karma is coming, it almost got Trump, still could I guess.

VOTE BIDEN/HARRIS. End the four year nightmare.

Say What again

Since we can't edit. I will rewrite what I said with corrections.

Evidently President Trump was not told about the impending capture of the Michigan Militia trying to kidnap and execute the governor. They did not want Trump to warn the vigilantes.

This is the guy Justin Hale and others are voting for to lead our nation for another four years.

Sad.

Justin Hale

Gary, you say that "Evidently President Trump was not told about the impending capture" because they, presumably the FBI, "They did not want Trump to warn the vigilantes". Where does your information come from? I did a Google search and could find it nowhere, even the Biased NYT had no such story. "Evidently" based on what? Most likely "evidently" based on a fiction of your own creation, a common practice of the Trump-Haters and Harris/Biden voters.

Justin Time, Some say President Trump was not advised of the vigilante takedown because he had expressed sympathy for them with his "Liberate Michigan" and "Standby" comments directed to White Supremacists. Trump thinks any mistake he has made is Obama's fault. You might think there are good people on both sides, evidently.

Sounds exactly like something that would happen. He does have a reputation for his big mouth.

Gary,

Some say Bigfoot exists and alien abductions are a reality......

And Yes Gary, I do believe that there are good people on both sides, most of my friends believe as you do, Trump-Haters, but they are still my friends, we just don't share the same politics. Just as you and I don't share the same politics, I'm guessing that you're probably a good person.

The number of cases of COVID-19 is already creeping back up in many states, with an ABC analysis showing Friday increases in 28 states and a seven-day average of more than 44,000 new cases — the highest number since Aug. 21.

Right Tom, this Virus that the Chinese created is turning out to be a real killer, what is the world going to do to hold China accountable?

North and South Dakota

What do these two states have in common. The coronovirus is spiking, why? Both refuse to wear masks. Thank you Donald Trump, more states that have bought your crap.

Vote for people who care about our country, not about their right to kill people.

November 3rd

VOTE BIDEN-HARRIS

Just in Hale is not a real person. Trump sycophants. Don't believe the Trump lies.

If President Trump would have declared that all citizens must wear a mask you Trump-haters would be calling him a dictator.

Dr. Fauci

If Dr. Fauci had persuaded Trump to mandate mask wearing, I would have said Finally. Jay Inslee mandated it, you fought it, and so did Republicans in every community. It took months for some people to realize wearing a mask is essential.

You have to have confidence in a president to follow his mandates, Trump has never had my confidence to do anything except make more money for himself, create hate, endanger peoples health, and pretty much ruin the standing of the U.S. in other countries.

VOTE for Biden/Harris, Democrats in every state.

We can't take four more years of liars in the white house and senate.

By the way North and South Dakota's COVID-19 infections have risen 70 percent since the motorcycle party in Sturgis.

Motorcyclists say "we don't need no stinking masks!", but according to you, Trump is to blame.

Tuesday, October 13, 2020
Really?

You question if Trump is to blame? The worst role model I have ever seen. Always in crowds of people with no mask, no distancing. Acts like COVID-19 is no big deal. He should be ashamed and apologize to the families of the 200,000 dead from the virus.

No empathy at all. Yes, we should all blame Trump for not leading this country but only focusing on his billionaire friends and his own fortune. History will not be kind to Mr. Trump, nor should it.

Tuesday, October 13, 2020
Tom Camfield

And through it all, racism flourishes. And yes, Trump is to blame.

Tuesday, October 13, 2020
Justin Hale

Really, Really?

Blaming President Trump for the thousands of motorcyclists who went to Sturgis is the kind of loony thinking that only a Trump-hater could come up with. I suppose you also blame Trump for all of the NFL teams playing and not wearing a mask OMG!!! I suppose Pete Carroll should blame Trump for that 100k fine that the NFL levied on him for not wearing a mask.

You want Trump to apologize for something that China let loose on the world? You want Trump to apologize to the choir members of that Mt.Vernon church who didn't wear masks and died from CoVid-19? That's loony tunes, really!

You say that Trump is "only focusing on his billionaire friends and his own fortune". Are you aware that Trump has returned his Presidential salary to the federal government, that's 400k a year. What other Presidents have done that?

Justin Hale

Tom, that is such BS.

We should be working side by side with China on the coronavirus. Assessing blame for unintended results of apparent research avails us absolutely nothing. The problem now exists and must be dealt with—rather than killing off hundreds of thousands of our citizens in a feckless effort to fatten Donald Trump’s stock market.

I’m also tired of hearing about the PR move of Donald returning his salary, especially after seeing some of his tax figures. And how much is he actually ripping off through presidential connections? It’ll be interesting to see some of the cases in which he is defendant finally move through the courts once he is kicked out of the White House.

Flailing away

Best you can do Just in Hale? Trump gave away his salary? Your flogging an old horse that no one cares about. there were other Presidents, but then you know that.

Trump and his supporters are purposely making people sick and causing death by not wearing a mask or distancing. The more the merrier I say, the less Trump voters out there the better.

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

There were no "unintended results" of what China did. They were using their Wuhan lab to do research on the SARS virus, the lab did not practice procedures to contain the virus. Once out in the public, the CCP restricted travel inside of China while allowing flights out of China to the rest of the world. The CCP lied to the WHO. China is a pariah nation and should be treated as such.

"how much is he actually ripping off through presidential connections".....you mean as Hunter Biden did?

Failing away,

"The more the merrier I say". I have to wonder what kind of person wishes sickness and death on others.

Wednesday, October 14, 2020
Tom Camfield

Yes indeed. Let’s give Donald’s “14 doctors” at Walter Reed and Johns Hopkins “very soon” and retroactively to each of the 1,087,035 “officially” dead from coronavirus worldwide. Meanwhile, I fail to see where continuing to blame China is curing the actual U.S. problem of the moment—7,856,714 infected and 215,902 dead in the U.S. alone, while many among us continue cheering Donald’s 9-month refusal to endorse hand-washing and mask-wearing. Donald’s virtual kissing of every ”housewife” in suburbia isn’t really cutting the mustard either, but he seems to be enjoying the steroids of alternate virus suppressants that have him looking healthy these several weeks until election day.

Over the past month, hospitalizations from coronavirus have more than tripled in the U.S. Some states in particular. In North Dakota, the relativity (rate per 100 tested individuals) is 30—and this with poor testing that does not include 80 or 90% of the public. Iowa has a 20% relativity rate, while 3% is optimal among infectious-disease experts. Donald of course, remains eager to rejuvenate the stock market, opening all things to the public—while the virus just “fades away.”

Wednesday, October 14, 2020
Justin Hale

Tom, I don't see where continuing to blame President Trump for any of the outcomes of the virus that China is responsible for releasing on the world, helps. But of course the Democrats and Trump-haters, I repeat myself, are trying to lay the blame on Trump as a campaign strategy, just as you have done Tom.

And it's not "laying blame" as much as it is holding the CCP accountable for what they created. If the world doesn't stand up to the CCP we will get more of the same in the future. The CCP must be very pleased with your take on this pandemic they created Tom.

About every financial category is on the decline; and with Donald attempting to will an alternate reality into existence without regard for the average citizen, we have 216,872 coronavirus-related deaths as of today (Oct. 15). Probably more if we included the difference to deaths from "pneumonia" and "flu" to this point last year. And I have no doubt we'll reach 400,0000 "officially" by the time Donald leaves office Jan. 20.

"And I have no doubt we'll reach 400,0000 "officially" by the time Donald leaves office Jan. 20"..... and every Covid-19 death thereafter will be Joe Biden's fault, right Tom.
